Step up. Strengthen. Flourish.

Fuel the fire within!

We are the transitional industry training organisation for sport, exercise, recreation and performing arts. We create qualifications and help workplaces to get staff trained and qualified. Through this work, our industries can step up, strengthen their people and flourish as individuals and businesses.
